Ocasio-Cortez quits Facebook, calling social media a 'public health risk'

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

"We need to expand what those policy conversations are", said Ocasio-Cortez, "because as just a citizen of this country, I would be very concerned if Trump started really pursuing more and more and more increasingly risky policies and everyone just standing aside and say this is normal, this is just like before".

While many of Ocasio-Cortez's critics and fans believe that her social media game is her greatest strength, Ocasio-Cortez has become a frequent punching bag on social media as numerous things that she posts are false, offensive, or both.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., NY) linked Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu's reelection to "the ascent of authoritarianism across the world", and suggested the United States should consider reducing military and economic aid to Israel during an appearance on the Skullduggery podcast on Sunday.

Now Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez could follow in the footsteps of Jeremy Corbyn and address thousands of people at the Glastonbury Festival.

Both characters mentioned by Ocasio-Cortez are part of a dynastic lineage that was overthrown in the years prior to the events of the show.

Ocasio-Cortez drew an implied analogy to US policy on the southern border, where Trump last week implied that the policy of detaining immigrants and removing their children was an effective deterrent to illegal immigration. Roughly half of the nation's teenagers say they use Facebook, compared with 71 percent in 2015.

Uber files much awaited IPO, reveals loss of $1.8B in 2018
The non-EBITDA net income, however, is an impressive turnaround compared to its 2017 full-year loss of more than $4 million. Uber in 2018 had $11.3 billion revenue, up around 42 percent over 2017, but below the 106 percent growth the prior year.

Her reference to 9/11 surfaced on social media. A separate Pew Research survey found that 74 percent of US adult Facebook users have done one of the following: changed their privacy settings, taken a break from the platform or deleted it. She said later in March that "I think what's tough is impeachment is something that I openly support, but it's also just the reality of having votes in the Senate to pursue that".

In the same tweet, Ocasio-Cortez pins threats she has received on Republicans, asking, "GOP, what's it going to take to stop?"

"There are amplified impacts for young people, particularly children under the age of 3, with screen time. I don't think it's out of line to simply call that out and criticize it".

"But I think that we need to expand what those policy conversations are because I would-as just a citizen of this country-I would be very concerned if Trump started really pursuing more and more and more increasingly unsafe policies, and everyone just standing aside saying this is normal", she said. "If a lot of people tweeted that, perhaps Twitter would've taken the tweet down as targeted harassment".

Barr said her recent comments about Crenshaw "demonstrate a lack of civility that is becoming far too common in the U.S. House of Representatives".
